Now that delivery vehicles are a constant presence in traffic and through neighborhoods, there should be a way to reduce their environmental impact. One of the most effective ways is through optimizing routes, using real-time data to streamline the process from the first to the final mile. Systems can provide accurate information and guidance on the optimal number of vehicles required and the most efficient route to be taken to deliver the packages to each location on time, as well as where shipments can be consolidated to put fewer trucks on the road.
